A little about yourself and what you have to offer this wedding community?
I marry unchurched couples who want a ceremony that is personal, unique, and spiritual without being religious.

As both a wedding officiant and romance novelist, I treasure that "happily ever after" moment. When I talk with couples, I listen for those clues that will inspire me to create a ritual that will really mean something to them.

One bride loved butterflies. I created a ritual tying seven butterflies to seven blessings. Another bride was building an herb garden. I created a ritual using four wedding herbs and their magical properties. One of the most unusual wedding rituals I created was inspired by Buddhist prayer flags. I'm working on ritual based on the secret language of shells. All I need now is a beach wedding!

Your ceremony can be so much more than "Dearly Beloved..." Work with a creative officiant because memories of the wedding ceremony itself should last a lifetime.
Do you have a wedding website, blog, or registry link?

My Couples Inspire My Rituals

When I meet with a Couple, I ask dozens of questions. What are their hobbies and interests? Do they like to cook? Garden? Do they connect with their cultural roots? Is there a place they consider sacred? I use their answers to write their love story, a key element in their ceremony. Sometimes, their answers inspire me to create a new wedding ritual. That was the case with Laurie and Alan.…

A Bride in her early thirties asked me if she had to carry a bouquet. She and her Groom had planned a small ceremony in the home of his parents. Fewer than ten people would attend. With international travel scheduled for the following week, the important item on their agenda was having a legal ceremony. They would have a big, traditional wedding next year, after the baby was born. Rather than hold flowers for this small ceremony, she would hold the Groom’s hands. I assured her there was no…

WIND HORSE: A Wedding Ritual with Tibetan Prayer Flags

This is an excerpt from a ceremony I created for a Buddhist couple. They wanted their wedding to acknowledge and celebrate the spiritual path they had chosen. I've included some of the stage direction in case you'd like to use the ritual yourself.

From the Ritual: Wind Horse --
